Optical transmissivity and reflectivity of one dimensional array of metallic nanowires embedded in
transparent dielectric is characterized. i employ wave optics simulation to analyze the optical field
distribution in both the dielectric and the nanowires. The results indicate that the transmissivity and
reflectivity depend on the polarization states of the incident light. The metallic nanowires matrix
transmit in-plane polarization but block light out at of-plane polarization.
